Hi guys,
I was using a r500 controlled by a zd1200 with firmware 9.12.1.0.148, but now i need to convert it to autonomous for a test.

Nowadays the ap has the firmware 9.12.1.0.148

I downloaded the follows files:
IndoorAp-100_1_0_0_432.zip
Release_100.1.0.0.194_All_Ap_images.zip

I reseted the ap r500

And i used the "local" option in the GUI (192.168.0.1) in order to upgrade but i have the follow message:

The following error occurred
bad firmware header magic

this error happen with the 2 files downloaded....so i don ́t know where is the problem.

thanks for your comments!,

Just to confirm -- did you unzip the files and find the R500 .bl7 file? Uploading the entire .zip file won't work -- it's an archive with the firmwares for all the APs supported by that release.

Additionally please do not make a mistake and flash an AP with the wrong firmware if you are moving from a SZ to standalone, as it will brick the AP; it does not do any internal checks on the file as of yet when moving between platforms.

If you get an error after an upgrade (it's been known to happen) do a MD5 on the file that you downloaded:
CertUtil -hashfile C:\Users\username\Downloads\yourfile.bl7 MD5
Note: Ruckus have stopped posting the MD5 checksum values for zipped files, so you may have to contact support to verify the MD5 value.
